iPerf Client

iPerf is a tool used for network throughput measurements. To function, it requires that two devices must be running the iPerf software to obtain bandwidth metrics between two endpoints. One device plays the role of the server and the other plays the role of the client. In Exinda, there is a Web User Interface option to configure an Exinda appliance as an iPerf client:

To configure an Exinda Appliance as the iPerf client:

  1. Click Configuration > System > Tools > Iperf Client.

  1. In the Server field, type the IPInternet protocol address or Host Name of an iPerf server that is already running.

  1. Click Run Tests to view the test results.
